We found this cafe walking to Union square. I thought it was a cute little cafe straight out of the 50's. You sit at the bar and they cook up the food right in front of you. The prices cant be beat! We were a party of 2. Had 2 eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, toast and a coffee and for the both of us the bill was like 12 dollars.

If you looking for something fancy, or chain like Dennys etc this isnt it. If you dont mind a dive with good food and great prices then you will enjoy.

After I read the very positive reviews at tripadvisor, I was kind of excited to have a nice place near my hotel to have breakfast. I walked down the street and found out the place is quite old fashioned, which doesn't matter for me as long as foods are fine.
I ordered an omlete, hash brown potato, toast and coffee. They were just like homemade that means nothing special. If you are sick and tired of having extremely great, excellent and fine dishes for long days travel, worth to try this place once.
Also do not sit near the kitchen. Otherwise you'll realize that your hair and clothes smell oil and butter after getting out of the place.
This was my first meal in SF and this experience was disappointed enough. This place can be good for local people or budget travellers, but definitely not for those who expect something new and special during the trip.

Harbor no illusions. This little corner shop serves fine food, but if you're looking for atmosphere, free WiFi, and any espresso drinks...then look elsewhere.

I walked past a bunch of upscale coffee shops and the like to get to this place. It's firmly rooted in the Tenderloin District, and the clientele reflected the neighborhood...mostly funky, some working people, but everyone looking for a hearty breakfast.

Two guys were running the place this day. One was on the grill, and another took orders and distributed the results. Here are a couple of examples: two eggs, toast, hash browns and two slices of bacon- $4; omelet with jack cheese, avocado, and salsa, rye toast, and hashbrowns - $5.75.

The value is high, but the place is again...a little funky.
